Artist Beware: Nekomage

WHO: Nekomage

WHERE: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/nekomage/

WHAT: Art Contest for prize money

WHEN: From late August 2012 to present

PROOF: http://cl.ly/image/1y3F0N0r462G/o I went through all my notes to put these all together. Sadly after October, any further contact was done on journal comments or shouts, which have all been deleted.

EXPLAIN: As you can see from the cap above, I tried many times to talk to Mage about the money, but...I felt that I was just getting a bunch of excuses....At the same time I feel wrong for saying that, because I don't have any proof that he was making things up and he prolly wasn't for some of his ailments. I'm not going to go right out and say he lied about going to the hospital or anything like that. But I was promised the money well before any of this transpired.
After much thought about it and some opinions from friends, I decided to finally get firm. This is what I got...

So pretty much I did a free commission that "wasn't even good anyway" and was labelled greedy and pretty much...uncaring, I guess. I honestly feel bad for any of the other artists who entered his contest, and if I can find them I'll let them know this immediately. So much for that.
  • Current Mood: Insulted.

Honestly, I find the notes from "Rommie" to be really suspicious... His typing is the exact same as Nekomage's. Personally I'd be skeptical about Neko having ever been in the hospital at all.

His attitude to you in that last note is absolutely repulsive. Beware very well warranted.

He did have a journal up at one point, talking about how he had been to the hospital. He deleted it though along with almost all his other journals.

Meh, I wondered what became of that contest. I was another contestant in it and gave it the benefit of the doubt. Sorry you went through this and I'm sure you're art is fine and he's just being all sour grapes about it. In any case his comment about your art is immature, uncalled, unprofessional and a bunch of other in's and un's I can't think of at the moment.

It's a shame that he can't at least fulfill his end of the contest.

Oh wow. That is phenomenally rude I can't even think of anything else to say. Beware well warranted... even if I do tend to stay away from contests like these anyway >_>

Well, I certainly be sure to stay away from them or at least hold them in high scrutiny, before entering.

Oh my goodness his attitude was gross. Thanks for the beware.

There was no need for the insults on your art. You seemed very nice and calm about it even after getting the run around multiple times.

He really should have sent the money on that day that the contest was one, if he wasn't able to he shouldn't have healed it in the first place. It really bugs me when people hold contests like that just in order to get free art or pimp journals/watchers and then never produce the promised prizes. It has happened to me on more than one occasion. I am sorry you had to deal with this, if it helps I adore your art and love the bases you do!

Yea, he is not someone who should be allowed to have money, because he easily and quickly flips tables or attacks people over it.

^ Pretty much completely unprovoked anger from Nekomage. I really don't believe the "this isn't Nekomage" stories either, they're obviously the same person.

(I see the OP posted in that thread with their update here. :O Yea, verified terrible.)

Oh wow... echowhispers commented on that and was worried the contest was not going to end well. At least you have great foresight, echo.

Yikes, I think this person needs to walk off and do something else for a while. Judging from the past beware about him, it's clear that he has problems controlling his emotions. Keeping this guy in mind big time.
